Danshui

Here are a few more pics. They were actually taken the night before the first mini road trip. I'm trying to post everything chronologically...but I goofed.
Anjoli will post more Danshui pictures on her blog. (I've been VERY lax in helping her...tsk tsk!).
We took a cab to the MRT (mass rapid transit). The train is above ground, so it's a great way to see the city and surrounding mountains.
We had a seafood BBQ dinner that night. We sat around a grill and cooked our own food. The food was good, but we had to sit on these tiny plastic chairs - it was really weird! I know the people here are small, but...







Sokoun sucking on a seasnail...yum! (No, i didn't try it! After unknowingly eating squid lips (!) I've decided to err on the side of caution, gastronomically speaking!).




Put on your high-heeled sneakers! They're actually kinda cute (if you're 15!).





(Chris, Sokoun and Lyn). Lyn is telling me, "that's the LAST TIME I'm cooking on this trip!!!!"

Thanks Elaine! Much more to come...
Long time no see!
I tried to leave you a message on your blog awhile back, but you were "blogging off." Glad to see that you're back!

Oh if she were only kissing it, Molly!
Aren't they cute shoes though? Oh to be young again...
Yeah I'm going to go through culture shock when I return in August. It's going to be REALLY strange! Driving after 6 months?
Watch out San Diego (I'm a scary driver as it is!).

Mmmmh, the photos of your eating make my mouth water. Not so sure about the seasnail though :) Although I'm sure if we westerners discarded our prejudice it would be delicious!

And those high-heeled sneakers...whatever do they think of next? Actually, I'm pretty sure my sister would have gone for them big time when she was 15
